Villa holidays are a great choice for families, who can enjoy their own private facilities plus the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can enjoy themselves independently and safely, without having to worry about them disturbing other guests, means that parents will have a more relaxed holiday too. In that respect, Casa Brio is a great villa for families. Those with young children will appreciate the shallow section of the 21-metre swimming pool; a safety net can be stretched across to prevent toddlers from moving to deeper waters. And parents may keep an eye on them from the comfort of the living pavilion that opens onto the full length of the pool deck. Older kids are likely to claim the over-sized pool beanbags or make a beeline for the media room where there is a small selection of DVDs.
The friendly staff at Casa Brio will make children feel as welcome as adults, which gives parents plenty of flexibility and the freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the well-equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa chef. Chocolate ice cream on the pool deck? Toasted cheese sandwiches in the media room? No problem! The cook can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
And don’t worry about packing all that cumbersome kids’ equipment for your stay. Just let us know what you need; anything we don’t have in-house (villa facilities include a baby cot, high chair and baby bath) we can arrange for you upon request. (See full list of available hire items). And when the excitement of exploring the villa starts to wear off, check out our Things to do page; there’s plenty in the area to keep all the family amused throughout the holiday.
Casa Brio – 4 bedroom villa in Seminyak, BaliElite Havens
Brio is the Italian word for liveliness, vivacity, verve – the perfect name for this bright and breezy Seminyak villa that sparkles on every count. First impressions are of generosity, both in space and design. Think luxurious living spaces and glamorous bedroom suites, contemporary furnishings and designer homewares in a palette of cool grey and dusky pink. In the enormous vaulted living pavilion, uncompromisingly comfortable super-sized sofas sit on acres of marble flooring, and a solid Suarwood dining table stretches almost four metres under uber-chic pendant lighting – all facing a 21-metre swimming pool edged with an ironwood sun deck.
From 7am ‘til 11pm staff are discreetly on hand, ready to attend to your every whim, serving drinks and snacks and providing delicious meals from an enticing suggestion menu. When there’s no need to lift a finger, how will you spend your day in paradise? Perhaps start with a breakfast of perfectly poached eggs served in the poolside bale. Then cool off in the pool and recline on a sun lounger with a good book. Follow a light lunch with a siesta or in-villa massage, then an hour or so of browsing the many fashion and lifestyle boutiques just a short walk away. As the day draws to a close, sip a sunset cocktail on the rooftop terrace or stroll down to one of Bali’s iconic beach bars. Then return to a gourmet candle-lit dinner prepared by the accomplished villa chef.
Casa Brio offers Bali-style indoor-outdoor living at its best, with all the ingredients for a blissful Bali holiday: stand-out accommodation, a seven-strong staff, and a stellar (yet secluded) beach-in-five Seminyak location – perfect for multi-generation families (including less mobile or wheelchair-bound guests) as well as groups of friends.
